Jesus is tenderly calling thee home

Jesus is tenderly calling thee home -
Calling today, calling today !
Why from the sunshine of love wilt thou roam
Farther and farther away ? today ! today !..
Jesus is calling, is tenderly calling today

Jesus is calling the weary to rest -
Calling today, calling today !
Bring Him thy burden and thou shalt be blest:
He will not turn thee away.

Jesus is waiting, oh, come to Him now -
Waiting today, waiting today !
Come with thy sins, at His feet lowly bow ;
Come, and no longer delay !

Jesus is pleading; oh, list to His voice -
Hear Him today, hear Him today !
They who believe on His name shall rejoice ;
Quickly arise and away !
